Nathan’s life is upended when his father’s corpse surfaces and forensics indicate that he was shot and killed nearly a decade ago. Local law enforcement deem his father’s death a suicide and claim that Nathan forged his father's baffling letters. From rock bottom, Nathan takes on the mindbending case himself; deciphering one bizarre clue after another in search of a mysterious killer.
Nathan’s solipsistic quest for revenge will lead to his arrest, expulsion and incarceration. Still, Nathan will risk his life to escape and hunt down his shadowy suspect… But some secrets are best left buried.
